Waiting on Wednesday #12 - Unhinged by A.G. Howard

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over on Breaking the Spine to spotlight new releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

From Goodreads:
"Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she's always dreamed of.

That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs.

As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus’s unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he’s forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won’t be far behind.

If Alyssa stays in the human realm, she could endanger Jeb, her parents, and everyone she loves. But if she steps through the rabbit hole again, she'll face a deadly battle that could cost more than just her head."

I know it might be a little early to post this one as it doesn't come out until January 7, 2014, but I  just finished reading the chapter sampler that was available from Netgalley and the publisher and it was awesome.  It started out in mid action. Already there was tension. And from there the tension just continued to build. By the end of the sampler, I just wanted the rest of the book. I loved the interplay between Alyssa and Morpheus. I haven't yet read book one. This is my first exposure to these characters and this Wonderland. I want to know more. I'm waiting to read  Splintered from my library and happy to see it getting checked out.

So what are you waiting on this week?
